The (very) early years...

Way back in the late seventies (ok so now I am really telling my age!) I attended a school in Henley On Thames, England called Shiplake College. When I was around 16 (after several years of classical guitar lessons) I discovered rock 'n roll! Actually a few of us did around the same time and we put a band together thinking we might conquer, well Henley at least! We even did some local gigs, but mostly at the school for the students. For the most part the various bands consisted of Eddie Barnes (vocals), Jason Shipp (Bass), Mike Yates (Drums) and yours truly on guitar! Jason sent me these photos some time ago. I think his brother took them. I have been hanging on to them for a while. Recently I thought, what the heck, I'll put them on the site, they are hilarious!!
